20 minute session

This session will explore case studies outlining the development, implementation and iteration of two different online environments, designed with the goal of maximizing student engagement through a range of different online pedagogies. The first case study will detail Pickering College's pilot of running the entire senior school online for a week, The Global Online Experience. Day and Boarding students all over the world followed an academic program that met all curriculum objectives via a range of activities and platforms. Faculty were given professional development to match online pedagogy to their objectives, and appropriate technology was chosen for global access. The second case study will explore how Pickering College has taken their Global Leadership Program, and digitized projects and resources for teachers and students from non-traditional markets to participate in and earn digital credentials towards the Global Leadership Program. Facilitators of this session will share the vision and pedagogy as well as the technical aspects of implementing these online programs.
